Leopardstown Racecourse will stage a ‘Champion Hat’ competition on day one of Longines Irish Champions Weekend, on Saturday, September 10th, to celebrate the growing art of millinery in Ireland. The Champion Hat competition, sponsored by Moët & Chandon will be solely judged on the hat or headpiece inviting entrants to be as creative or as subtle as they wish.
The winner of this innovative style competition will receive a luxurious two-night stay in the 5-star Merrion Hotel along with two magnums of Moët & Chandon.
Broadcaster Rachel Wyse and Cathy Donoghue, Fashion and Beauty editor of her.ie will be on hand to judge the Champion Hat Competition. Rachel will also choose the most elegantly dressed man and woman attending the first day of Longines Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown Racecourse as part of the weekend’s Longines Prize for Elegance style competition, which boasts a prize fund of €25,000.
Myself, Martha Lynn, Aoife Harrison and Maria Estivariz of Moët & Chandon were invited to the press launch of the event in the Merrion Hotel recently. If you've been following me on Snapchat (My username is jenniferwrynne), you will have seen some of the 'Behind the scenes' footage but if not, here are some snaps from the day!
The Longines Irish Champions Weekend is always a fantastic weekend in Leopardstown and now that they are focusing on a Champion Hat competition, it sounds like it's going to be even better!
The outfit that I'm wearing in this post is from my Boutique. The black jumpsuit is the most comfortable jumpsuit to wear - Available in Black (As seen here), Cobalt Blue and Coral and in sizes 8-14.
The headpiece is the 'Carmel' hat available to purchase here.
If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
